How well do you know the memorable Gorn episode of Star Trek?

Enter the "Arena" and take on this quiz!

The original Star Trek series was philosophical, strange, deadly serious and wonderfully wacky – sometimes all in the same episode! One of those episodes is the first season outing “Arena.” It has since become a legendary entry in the franchise for its reptilian villain – the Gorn. Though immensely strong, the green, glitter-eyed monster doesn’t exactly move at warp speed.

How well do you remember this iconic space adventure? Test your might, at least when it comes to Star Trek details, in this “Arena” episode quiz!

12/12 But I found the questions harder than I thought, very specific, and not something I tend to keep in my memory.

I guess it wasn't very memorable to me. All I remember is the reptile guy and the boulder.

Pretty easy, but 11 out of 12.
I got number 5 wrong.
I thought Kirk was tryig to go to Warp 10 - but then again, I shoud have known that that is a theoretical imposibility.
But, then again, Tom Paris did go to Warp 10 in Voyager and look what it did to him and Janeway.

It's much more satisfying to say WARP EIGHT.

I've been to Vasquez Rocks, near Agua Dolce, CA. Every Trek Fan should visit there at least once, and read the kiosk. There have been so many other TV Shows and movies filmed there, but the place is best remembered as the Star Trek site.

Even tho the original Trek used ridiculous sets and costumes its still the best.

12 for 12, this was a quiz? The Gorn rules. I read somewhere that Shatner had an accident filming this episode where one of the explosions he was dodging caused him some hearing problems. This episode
is in my top 5. "Captain Kirk...... this is your opponent earthling"
